Cavan Comhairle na nÓg

About us

Current topic

Cavan Comhairle’s primary topic for 2017 is Culture and History. In summer 2017 we hosted a POP-UP Gaeltacht event for Ulster/Connaught Comhairlí na nOg in Cavan to promote the history of the county through Irish. The format was an Irish-speaking event to promote the history of the county. In February 2018 we scooped an award for ‘Best Irish Language Initiative’ for our Pop-Up Gaeltacht. Presented by by IPB Insurance and LAMA (Local Authority Members Association), the LAMA All-Ireland Community and Council Awards celebrate collaborations between councils and communities, bringing national recognition to local projects and initiatives. The Awards 2018 took place in Croke Park on Saturday February 3rd. Taking place in June 2017 at Castle Saunderson International Scouting Centre, the Pop-Up Gaeltacht saw scores of young people converge on West Cavan for two days of ceol, caint, agus craic.
